Our 'Little House' close to Bormes and Le Lavandou provides a choice of beaches against the backdrop of the Des Maures Hills. Bormes has the reputation of being the sunniest and prettiest village on the Cote d'Azur. Le Lavandou is a bustling resort providing a splendid choice of restaurants, and departures for the Isles d'Hyeres. We have the shared use of a pool and tennis court. Golf at Val Cros is 5 miles away. There is no TV or telephone but we do have WIFI.

A very welcoming 'little' house
Although it may be 'little', the house is really comfortable and has a very homely feel. It provided everything we (family of four) needed. We made particular use of the back garden and BBQ in the evening - the garden is not directly overlooked and is shaded in the afternoon/evening which is a bonus in the summer. There are a number of nice sandy beaches and coves within about 15 mins drive - most of which provide free car parking. The swimming pool is great for children and is only a couple on minutes on foot from the house. Bormes les Mimosas is a nearby and worth a visit and provides splendid views of the coastline. The house provides a great base for people who like to explore their surrounding area as it is minutes from the coast but also at the foot of the Maures Mountains. If you don't mind a car journey ( and have nerves of steel) the Gorge du Verdon, is spectacular and well worth a day trip. All in all we're happy to recommend this property to other visitors to the area. We are looking forward to returning to the house soon.
Many thanks indeed to Sue and family for a very thoughtful review. we have had the little house for 20 years and it is very much our second home. The House Notes which we send to anyone who is interested suggest a day trip (a very long day trip) to the Verdun Gorge and we are delighted that you were able to make the trip; the Gorge is certainly spectacular. Nearer home a visit to the Abbee Thoronet is recommended; over the Autoroute Provencal (A.8) at gate 13 to the village of Thoronet and 2 miles further on. The Abbee is in a delightful setting and very peaceful. The beaches at La Faviere, Le Lavandou, St. Clair, Fossette Plage and Cavaliere all have parking gratuit but not I'm afraid at Cabasson and l'Essangnol beaches; parking at these beaches under the trees £6.50 (approx) for the day. Like you we think Le Lavandou and its surrounds has much to offer and we do hope you will be renting the Little House again; we have pencilled in your provisional booking! Jeremy and Anna.
Beautiful little house
Highly recommended holiday home having stayed a few years now it never disappoints in comfort and facilities, plus shared swimming pool, lovely.
Dear Isabel and David,
Many thanks for your very kindly review. We are always delighted when renters make return visits. The pool is definitely a bonus and well maintained by our Residents' Association as is the tennis court.Jeremy and Anna.
ein süsses schönes Häuschen zum Wohlfühlen! A nice little House!
We were in the little nice house for 3 times now and we always liked it very much. It's big enough for 4 people in a quite area. In the house is everything we needed.The owners are very friendly and helpfull!
Dear Sonja and Harold,
Thank you so much for your very kindly review. Your English is brilliant. We agree that the Little House is best for a family of four. Five is just possible providing there are three young children. We look forward to seeing you again. Many thanks, Jeremy Wright.
Lovely little house
It is the 5th time we have stayed here. It is convenient for many of the facilities we enjoy and well placed to visit further away.
Many thanks Michael and Helena for giving us 5 Stars. We can't believe that you have stayed in the Little House on 5 occasions but 'tis true. We hope there might be more; you must ask for a discount! Jeremy and Anna.
Great little villa in a wonderful area of France
Lovely little house with absolutely everything we needed. The children loved the swimming pool and tennis court. Close to Pins de Bormes, perfect for breakfast (and a great little market on Tuesdays). Le Faviere, Le Lavandou and Bormes village less than 5 minutes away. All three were great for evening strolls and well worth a visit.
We had a perfect two weeks and we will definitely be back.
Many thanks Barnaby for taking the trouble to write a review. I think I should point out that Barnaby is our son so please disregard the 5 Stars he gives the Little House but what he says is probably fair comment. We certainly have the use of a swimming-pool and tennis court. 5 minutes to Pin de Bormes and Le Faviere yes; perhaps a little longer to the Le Lavandou sea-front and Bormes Village. Bormes les Mimosas is a hill village with magnificent views over the Med; it is considered one of the prettiest villages on the Cote d'Azur and the floral displays in every nook and cranny are magnificent. Your Mother and Father.
We (four persons) felt at home immediately in this charming little house. It is well equipped and we had anything we needed. In the garden there are chairs and tables both in the front and the back of the house so we had all meals outside. Furthermore there are sun loungers on the balcony.
A reserved parking place is located in front of the house.
After returning from our excursions we used to take a bath in the big pool just a few minutes away from the house.
The owners are very friendly. We didn't meet them but we've got a large documentation by e-mail. They also got in touch with us during our stay.
The wonderful old town of Bormes-Les-Mimosas in the hills and the lively La Faviére at the harbour are reachable in a few minutes by car to play boule or enjoy ice cream. Nearby there are lots of gorgeous sandy beaches. We didn't have enough time to try them all - neither the beaches nor the ice creams.
We enjoyed our holidays very much and would like to come back to the "little house".
Maya & Jens
Thank you so much Maya and Jens for your splendid and much appreciated review. Your English is well nigh perfect. I wish I could speak and write in German as you do in English. Our English friends will smile and know that you and the family bathed in the pool and didn't take a bath! We understand that your daughter particularly enjoyed the pool; it is certainly used by the residents but big enough for all. Like all large pools it is shallow at one end but deep at the other. Just right for children. If you ever wish to stay in the Le Lavandou area again we would love to have you back. Anna and Jeremy.
Le Lavandou is some 20 miles West of St. Tropez and a recent Sunday Times travel article suggests that the resorts to the West are more enjoyable than those to the East. The Le Lavandou beaches ( St. Clair, Fossette Plage, Cavaliere, Faviere,Cabasson and Estagnol) are particularly recommended. They are superb. A trip to the Isles d'Hyeres and especially Isle de Port Cros is a must. The backdrop to Le Lavandou is the range of Des Maures hills; these provide splendid walking opportunities and the roads/lanes by car are quite exciting!
